"You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality." -Walt Disney

We are training to earn,
The wings on our feet.
That we will rise above all,
And never surrender to defeat.

Looking down the road,
Its jagged and the unknown.
Don’t forget who’s beside you,
You’ll never be alone.

Across the ocean and up the mountain,
We have the will to travel on.
Near the clouds in the sky,
Is where we belong.
It is waiting for us.
The welcome we’ve been searching for.
We will be crowned a champion,
That we’ve conquered Thor.

Fighting our rivals in combat,
And gaining battle scars.
We’ll loose faith at times,
But we can’t give up the race to the stars.

Running breathlessly,
After every mile,
Let the adrenalin spring from our veins,
This will be a while…

Through the forests and the desserts,
We’re getting closer to the sky.
Finally entering the gates where our fate lives,
And earning the gift to fly.
We have gone the long distance,
Crossing the finish line.
Holding the trophy of glory,
Holding a title of endless time

We have earned,
The wings on our feet.
We have risen above all,
And the feeling of great conceit.

A champion runs forever,
A champion will never be pulled down.
A champion feels the wind of triumph
As their feet lift off the ground
